Those White wall look real nice. I have few request for want of pictures.

1. There would be a plastic parcel tray on the Left hand side below the dashboard. Can you get me closeup picture along with the brackets for attachment.

2. There should be an air box in the centre below the dashboard, do you still have it, any pictures of it.

3. Can you provide me the detail pictures of the tail lamp (front, side and rear without the lens). I have searched hi and low for them but cannot find them. Intend to make a 3D model and get it machined to put in my car.

Hi Saif !
WOW, the whitewalls make a world of difference - the car looks so much more complete now . She was always a looker, but this bit adds to the charm all the more.
Cheers !

She really does look so original and period, this is one of the cleanest cars I've seen in a long time. Good luck with the petrol cap. And scrub those tyres clean

Karl just one question. What type of external petrol cap will come on these cars. Is it screw type or is it twist and turn type. I have seen both of the types.

I have seen both types myself on Selects, but on dukkars I have only seen the screw type. That said, I cannot confirm what came on which car. Either ways, the external appearence is identical.

I think the screw type is original. As all the caps I have seen so far on sites like ebay are screw type. The other type must be a local invention as the screw type mechanisms would get spoiled. But again this is my theory based on what I have been seeing in the parts market so far.

I have owned 2 selects the first one with the quarter turn type and the second one with screw type and that's why the confusion aroused. I spoke to karl and now know that screw type would have come on my car.

Shocked by the poor coverage of this event by the media in general, I was delighted to see that Team-Bhp and its members had truly captured every detail in a character befitting a connoisseur. I wasted no time in signing up, and to catch up on lost ground I spent most of my free time reading various threads and post's covered under the forum, vintage cars & Classics in India.

I am taking the liberty of starting this thread in the hope of restoring a vintage back to its old glory with a lot of help from my fellow team-bhpians.. 4266 as she is better known at home, has been with us since 1966. It was a purchase my grand father made after selling his Austin 16. The car was sparingly used by her first owner as it was by us.

Restore would be a very harsh word to use, as my father has looked after the car very well. Although it was the primary car of the house for a very long time its only done 125000 miles. Although the car might have lost a few original parts like tail lapms etc to wear&tear and regular service, to the best of my knowledge the car is mechanically in original condition. We always got her serviced with the same mechanic who is known to the family. Just got the engine overhauled and some minor servicing done...

I am not well versed with the detailing of the car and thus need your assistance. It means a lot to me as its been with us for now over 40 years. Looking forward to all the help and advise i can get.

regards

Default Re: My 1960 Fiat 1100

Hello everyone,

I finally did manage to find a petrol cap for my fiat but am facing a new type of hurdle and that is finding someone who can fit this on..

Currently the fiat has a delight type petrol cap system.

Request a couple of close up photographs from both the outside and the inside (from the boot).

Also, I would be much obliged if any of the Hyderabad fiat enthusiast could point me in the direction of a mechanic who could help with this fabrication...
